LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) A Louisville man was arrested on Saturday night for allegedly threatening to shoot up a store after he was upset about the portion of food he received.

Police were sent to a food mart on South 35th Street on a call of an individual threatening to shoot up the store. When police arrived, witnesses said Jeremiah Dorsey, 20, visited the store two times on Saturday night. On the first visit, Dorsey argued with employees about the amount of food he received, witnesses said. A supervisor told Dorsey to leave and to not return. 

On Dorsey's second visit, security cameras caught Dorsey "walking aggressively." Dorsey was asked to leave again when he allegedly said "I will shoot this place up!"

As officers cleared the run, Dorsey approached the store for a third time, according to a police report. Police asked Dorsey if he had anything on him and Dorsey said he was in possession of a .22 caliber pistol with four rounds in the clip of the gun. Dorsey did not have a concealed carry license, the report said.

Dorsey was charged with one count of wanton endangerment, one count of carrying a concealed weapon and one count of criminal trespassing. He is scheduled to appear in court on August 4. He is being held at the Louisville Metro Department of Corrections.
